Power Sockets


Electricity in any modern household is directed to wall sockets. What many people do not know, is that the current is then subdivided at each socket. Using both plugs in a dual socket means each device gets half the power, and using a power block decreases the individual output still further.
In some cases (such as charging a battery) this leads to longer charging times. However, by plugging the most power-hungry appliances into the same socket, it is possible to save on electricity.
